Logic Apps

Logic Apps allow developers to design workflows that articulate intent via a trigger and series of steps, each invoking an App Service API app whilst securely taking care of authentication and best practices like durable execution.
If you have any feedback or ideas on Azure Logic Apps we’d love to hear it.

  1. visual studio code

    Allow Logic Apps designer to be used from within Visual Studio Code.

    This would enable Logic Apps to be used in a cross platform manner outside the browser. Ideally the JSON file / template would be generated locally and would allow it to integrate with the VSCode git integration, which could then be deployed to Azure in the same way as for VS generally.

    • Add Source URL to metadata for Blob Storage

      Trying to do a copy of a blob from my source to an archive container. Would be nice if instead of having to find my source URL it could just be in the metadata of the file that gets passed along as a parameter. Just a QOL suggestion

      • Data Operations - Parse XML

        Have a Parse XML that is similar to the Data Operations - Parse JSON, so we can access the fields in the XML message the same way.

        • SharePoint triggers to apply across site collections or web application

          When you create a trigger for SharePoint you have to specify a site and library/list. I wanted to create a trigger that would apply to all libraries in a site collection (ideally across the web application). It's a pity I couldn't use logic apps because other than this issue they would have been a good fit for what we were trying to achieve.

          • Minimap For Logic App Navigation

            I currently have a rather large and wide logic app which I am working on, I find myself wishing there was an easier way to be able to navigate around the logic app, my solution would be a minimap implementation similar to that used in games like Age of Empires which displays where on the Logic App I am looking and something I can interact with to quickly navigate around.

              • logic app parameter and easy to deploy

                Currently deploy logic app using visual studio with differnet parameter varaible is time consuming process and its not fesiable to change the parameter inside the logic app json.

                we cant use this method to deploy test, uat and production region. could you please allow to store the parameter values and refer inside the json easily and configurable. Allow user to maintain the parameter file in visuable studio and deployable.

                • Provide SLA hints on each connector

                  I see so many developers getting caught off guard by not reading the SLA documentation on certain enterprise connectors which ends up failing in production.

                  Having the SLA easily visible or accessible in the designer may provide invaluable information right as I'm designing the workflow and help prevent a misuse of the connector.

                    • Use subscription "macro" instead of hard coding the subscription id where possible

                      Use subscription "macro" instead of hard coding the subscription id where possible

                      When I link in my custom Azure Function to my logic app, I get json like this:

                      "actions": {
                      "MySuperCoolAzureFunction": {
                      "type": "Function",
                      "inputs": {
                      "body": "@triggerBody()",
                      "method": "POST",
                      "function": {
                      "id": "/subscriptions/aaaaaaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaa/resourceGroups/SomeNamespace.SomeResourceGroup.EastUS/providers/Microsoft.Web/sites/SomeNamespaceAzurePocAzureFunctionsOne/functions/MySuperCoolAzureFunction"
                      }
                      },

                      Note the hard coded subscription id of "aaaaaaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaa"

                      It would help with deploying to different subscriptions if the "macro" , errr, I guess "resource function" was used instead.

                      Note the "concat(subscription().id" in the below snipplet.

                      This would make deployments to different subscriptions easier. (Aka, default to the below, so developers do not have…

                      • logic app designer and code view update the parameter values

                        Logic app designer overrides the HTTP path parameter values when I edit action using visual studio designer. Example ive configured http url as a parameter value and when i edit logic app using visual studio designer all my parametrized http urls are gone. due to this im not able to deploy logic apps to prod /test/dev resource groups.

                        It would be great to retain the parametrized path during the edit process in the logic app designer

                        • Order Action/Trigger llist by usage or favorite

                          The wide diversity of actions and triggers is great but we probably don't need them all in the same time.

                          It would be nice to be able to favorite Trigger/Action to have them shown at the top of the list, or be able to order the list by most-used actions/triggers.

                          I know that would speed up the process when having to build full ecosystems of apps based on the same technologies.

                          • Show only errors (within for each loop) in Logic Apps Run details

                            A lot of our logic apps have 'for each' loops. When one of the loops failed, the parent (loop) will show an error. We have the option to run through each loop's details page-by-page.

                            When 1 out of 1000 loops failed, the only option will be to walk through each loop, finding the exact error.

                            Requested feature would be to have a button "Next error", or "Only show failed loops". This would allow debugging Logic Apps with large loops.

                            • Append original http headers

                              calling Azure functions, API's and nested logic apps is going to be a common use case for most of the implementations. for error handling and tracking purposes we might need to send the Original HTTP headers along with few additional custom headers.

                              At present the headers section allows us to either insert new values in table format or add only original headers as shown in the image.

                              One work around is to use a variable for new headers and append using union expression with original headers https://toonvanhoutte.wordpress.com/2017/09/01/enrich-http-headers-in-logic-apps/ . However this approach leads us to have a variable declaration at every…

                              • Discrepancy in code view and designer view

                                I wanted to change the content type for the message to be uploaded to the storage .In code view I added the json code to change content type, as the functionality is not available in the blob connector and its working as expected. But whenever I open the logic app in azure it reverts all changes to the code view. I experienced similar issue with SQl connector for generated key columns as well.

                                This discrepancy in code view and designer view should be removed.
                                Logic app coding and deployment currently available only with vs 2017. The same support if extended…

                                • Provide capability to "Refactor Into new Logic App"

                                  In certain scenarios you have a working Logic App but then you receive a change request which involves splitting up a Logic App into two Logic Apps.

                                  It would be nice if I could refactor my Logic App into a new one.

                                  As an example, if I'm using a for each with a couple of shapes inside, it would be great to have the capability to refactor those shapes into a new Logic App that will be called instead.

                                  • Expression Shape/action to write line of code statements, same as BizTalk Orchestration Expression Shape

                                    Hi,

                                    I came across scenario where I need to initialize variables and set value using function and set of criteria. To achieve this, I have to add one by one initialize and set variable action and invoke function. Like BizTalk Orchestration Expression shape, if we will have similar action in Logic apps, then we do common logics code inside it. I tried "Compose" as type but it's not too clear implementation.

                                    • condition exit

                                      Allow logic app to remove the if no condition or allow logic app exit based on the if condition

                                        • Send custom events to Facebook Pixels

                                          Would love to have a trigger for sending Custom Events to Facebook.

                                          By connecting the Business Account to use their Smart Pixel, we then could send custom events to FB.
